Test me! Test me one more time and you'll see what happens.
~ Vos scolds Tobias Beckett for his failure.
You know who I answer to and you know what he'll expect of me. He'll say there have to be consequences. So here's what I need you to do for me. I need you to give me a reason not to kill you.
~ Vos to Beckett.
Once you're a part of Crimson Dawn, you can't leave.
~ Vos trying to make Han Solo a permanent member of the Crimson Dawn.

Dryden Vos is the main antagonist of the 2018 sci-fi film Solo: A Star Wars Story as well as a cameo antagonist in the seventh and final season of the 2008-2020 animated television show Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

He is the ruthless leader and crime lord of the Crimson Dawn, and a close ally-turned-nemesis for Tobias Beckett. During the film, he hires Beckett to steal the coaxium, but is later double-crossed and killed. Vos would be revealed as merely a subordinate of Crimson Dawn's true leader, former Sith Lord Darth Maul.

He was portrayed by Paul Bettany, who also played Bill Cox in Firewall, Silas in The Da Vinci Code, and Gangster in Gangster No.1.

Biography

Dryden Vos was the leader of a powerful criminal organization called the Crimson Dawn. He was a close ally for the Galactic Empire, Darth Maul,and also for Tobias Beckett. During the final days of the Clone Wars and the early stages of Order 66, Dryden was ordered to hide alongside all other syndicate leaders under his control, fearing that Sidious' impact over the galaxy would destroy his criminal empire.

He was firstly going to kill Beckett for his failure, but Han offered to create a coaxium generator instead of find one ready. Vos agreed, and promised to give them a huge amount of money in return. Han came with fake coaxium in a generator, and handed it to Vos, who was really impressed by Han for cheating him but was informed by Beckett about the plans to trick him and gain the money.

Dryden asks Qi'ra then what to do with a person which he trusts and then he (or she) betrays him. Qi'ra replies that he should sacrifice something beloved. He then orders to kill Han, as an act of her sacrificing her beloved man for him. However, Han revealed that he stole the real coaxium on time from The Cloud Raiders and insisted that it stays with him. Beckett then betrayed Vos, and stole both the coaxium and the money. Beckett was next going to sell the generator to a gang on Tatooine. Dryden offered Han Solo an alliance against Beckett to hunt him down together.

However, Solo disagreed. Dryden and Han fought, and in the middle of their battle, Qira attacked Han. Dryden explains that he trained her well and that she cannot leave him. However, Han tells her that she can leave, and that he knows she can. Qira then stabs Dryden Vos in the heart, and fights him until she manages to kill him.

Appearance

Dryden is a tall, slender blonde-haired man with blue-eyes and facial disfigurement with scars all-around his face.

Personality

Dryden Vos is an arrogant, corrupt, scheming, nefarious, deceitful, malignant and ruthless crime lord who is well-known for his deception and luxurious lifestyle. He is shown to be egomaniacal and ambitious as well as being maniacal and vicious since he is willing to eliminate anyone. Through his agenda, Vos is obsessed with wealth and aesthetic.

Trivia

  • Despite being the main antagonist and having driven the plot, served as the direct threat, and shown to be just as sadistic as Beckett, Dryden only has twenty minutes of screentime.
  • Paul Bettany has confirmed that Vos is not human, that he is actually an alien, as the marks on his face are not scars and are part from his species features.
